I made three loaves of bread (one for now and two in the freezer), six tomato scones (trying a frugal recipe I found and they were very nice so I have blogged the recipe - go and take a look), seven portions of turkey, apple and sage meatballs in a tomato and veg sauce (blogged this too), a flour and yogurt pizza base (because it intrigued me and used a bit of the meat sauce to top it - scrummy), a huge bowl of cheese sauce for the lasagne, pasta (a three egg amount) which I rolled out into lasagne and some very tasty meat sauce
Then I put things together to make a big lasagne, a small vegetarian lasagne and a pasta bake using gluten free pasta. They are now all in the freezer and will come out Friday evening ready to be baked or re-heated on Saturday morning
Today I have already started off another three loaves, for Beth, and hard boiled an egg. I have no idea what the latter is for, Beth asked me if I would because her eggs are all out of date and she needs one.
I've decided not to make the tear and share this time but just to go for garlic bread instead. Lazy? Maybe.
Not an awful lot to do for next week now. By chance Friday is hair day (have you remembered, Beth) and I have ordered an extra clean from my lovely cleaning company so I won't have to worry about that either.
It's wet outside! When I took the pasta dishes out to the freezer last night I was surprised to notice that it was drizzling very lightly and that must have carried on through the night. It's not as chilly as it felt yesterday morning either.
Well, I had better get going. I have bread to finish, a huge pile of washing to get through and some ironing to catch up on, not to mention school planning and preparation. I don't have to prepare a 'proper' lunch today as it seems Beth is making a Mother's Day tea and has warned me that a big lunch would be a Very Bad Idea. I shall just make some toast and pop jars on the table and have fruit for afters. I'm tempted to make some banana muffins - maybe I will as they will freeze fine.
